When actor George Clooney, rarely hesitant to offer his left-wing view of things, was asked about the implications of the deadly Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines as it relates to global warming, Clooney didn’t pull any punches before an awards show.
“Well it’s just a stupid argument,” he said of climate-change skeptics Saturday. “If you have 99% of doctors who tell you you are sick, and 1% that says you’re fine, you probably want to hang out…with the 99.
“The idea that we ignore that we’re some way involved in climate change is ridiculous. What’s the worst that can happen? That we clean up the earth a little bit?
“Yeah, I find this to be the most ridiculous argument ever.”
